The Gir National Park does not have a railway station of its own. The station in proximity to this forest is Veraval.
The Gir National Park is tucked in the southern part of Gujarat. Its importance lies in the fact that it is the last reserve for Asiatic lions. Several decades back these lions used to roam in the Indian sub-continent. At one point of time, the prevalence of wide-scale hunting had brought this number on the verge of extinction. The objective working behind the establishing of this park is the safety of the lions. There are hundreds of species of other animals and birds. You will come across different species of flora. All these factors have contributed to the making of a diverse natural reserve in the nation.
There are a host of things you can do in Gir. You can use this opportunity to explore the villages or pay a visit to the local temples. You can even stay at one of the towns in the forest zone or venture out in a jungle safari. You will end up with a fantastic experience when you glance at the natural treasures of the jungle.
